    I have used Podworks a year ago but cant seem to remember how to make it work. I have the registered version on my Mac. Please walk me thru the steps from connecting the Iphone to pulling up playlist.

    The last help was very detailed and great but a few things he told me to do was not available in Itunes... It seems that in the past I just opened Podworks.... I must be crazy!

    Thanks for any help.

    Thanks so much - after MANY hours of frustration the problem is solved.

PodWorks Help has screenshots and is the best source of information how to use the software.

If you followed instructions in the help file but still can't see your iPhone's content, you are using an older version of PodWorks that doesn't support your newer iPhone firmware.

You need Mac OS 10.4 above to use the software.

    If you purchase Podworks last year, you need to upgrade to latest version. iPhone 3G and 3GS are probably not supported on last year's release of PodWorks. Check the firmware version of your iPhone.

Hello,

click on the iPod in the source list on the left side of the window, and in the right pane, under the "Summary" tab, make sure the "Enable disk use" option is checked at the bottom. An easy way to tell whether the iPod is in disk mode is to look for an icon representing the icon on your desktop.
with this check your ipod should show up.

Take care.

    Hello,


    1. Open iTunes and click on iTunes Preferences in the menu bar at the
    top of the mac screen.

    2. Go to the Synching tab (the last one), and check "Disable automatic
    synching for all iPhones and iPods". This is to stop iTunes from wiping
    out the music on your iPod before you can use PodWorks to restore the
    music from your iPod to your iTunes. Click OK.

    3. Turn on your iPod and connect it to the first USB port on your
    MacBook (the one closest to the headphone jack - only matters on
    MacBooks). You should see your iPod appear in the left side of the
    iTunes window. Select that device in the left side of iTunes.

    4. A white Summary tab (the first one) should appear on the right side
    of your iTunes window. You should see a picture of an iPod and the
    headings iPod, Version, and Options in bold gray letters. At the bottom
    under Options, SCROLL DOWN USING THE SCROLLBAR TO THE RIGHT OF THE
    ITUNES WINDOW until you see four checkboxes. Put these in the following
    states:

    - Open iTunes when this iPod is connected - checked

    - Sync only checked songs and videos - unchecked

    - Manually manage music and videos - unchecked

    - Enable disk use - MAKE SURE THIS IS CHECKED

    5. At the bottom of the iTunes Summary window click Apply.

    6. At that point, your iTunes and iPod should refresh, and a persistent
    iPod icon should appear on your desktop.

    7. Start PodWorks, and low and behold you should see the fields in the
    PodWorks window populated with all of your iPod data. At that point, you
    can select the songs you want to transfer, and hit the copy button. If
    you are in need of a complete restore (like I was), click the Copy All
    button.

    8. Sit back, and enjoy watching PodWorks restore your music, back to your
    iTunes!

    Take care.

Why wont my iphone 4 turn on or charge?


Hello Anonymous
Have you tried holding the top button down at the same time as the main bottom button.
Hold them both down together for about 2 minutes.
This Total Reset may bring it back to life....
You could also try running iTunes on your Computer
(Mac or Win PC)
Then plug the Charge/USB Cable into the iPhone & the Computer.
If recognised, it should show up in the left hand column in iTunes. This is normally how you do a Backup or Restore of an iPhone or iPad.
Many people don't seem to realise that this is part of the Apple ecosystem to help look after your iDevices with Backups etc.
It's not just for getting songs and Apps.
There are also other software programs available to assist with getting files on & off your iPhone. If you have a Mac you can use PhoneView 2.9.8 or iPhone Configuration Utility to access the contents & set up for multiple company type users.
If your iPhone still refuses to come to life then you will have to take it to an Apple Store to have it looked at. If it is SHOT, keep in mind that there is a great trade in deal available to upgrade your model at a reasonable price at any Apple Shop.
Hope this Helps

How do I prevent Tenorshare iphone data recovery from crashing every time I try to connect my iPhone?


Hello, firend. iPhone Data Recovery for iPhone 4S is leww likely to crash and DFU mode is not needed. And the bug-fixed version is better than the previous. If it crashes really badly, you can apply for an exchange from Tenorshare.

Iphone got locked


You will need to put the iPhone in DFU mode to restore it.
was the iphone on a mac before?
If not, if you restore it on a mac you have to use it on a mac.
anyway, to prepare your phone for restore.
connect the usb to the iphone and not to the computer.
Press and Hold the Home Button for 5 Second (do not let it go)
Press and hold the Power Button for 10 Second (count the seconds) (the apple will appear)
after 10 second release the power button and do not release the home button.
Hold the Home button for an additional 27 secs.
The screen may go blank or not.
Connect the usb to the computer with your itunes already open.
It will recognize the device in recovery mode..Restore your iPhone and your set.
WARNING: The Restore process will delete all apps and content and install a fresh software.
